Are you anticipating a transition or need help starting one? Do you feel stuck in your current position and need help getting noticed as a leader? No matter what your reason for seeking an image consultation, help is accessible, and it can pave the way for you to take your career to a new level.
As much as we hate to admit, IMAGE DOES MATTER. The image you present yourself as is, and will be, judged by others. What’s more is that it happens almost instantly! It takes anywhere between 5-11 seconds for someone to start forming their first impression of you when they meet you. Once your brain starts forming those first opinions, confirmation bias kicks in. Your brain will only look to confirm the opinions it’s already started forming, kind of like the old saying, “We see what we want to see.” A first impression turns into a lasting professional image. What story are you telling others with your appearance, behavior and communication skills?
A less than stellar first impression and professional image could be working against you, especially in a professional or corporate environment. While you cannot control what others think of you, you can control the image you project. Appear successful, powerful, and confident and others (including yourself) will believe you to be those things.
In a sea of khaki and navy blue, let me help you stand out and be noticed for the right reasons. Below are the services I offer for individuals.
First Impression Evaluation
For this service we will meet in your office and I will evaluate your current appearance, behavior and communication skills. This will give us a starting point from which to develop and refine an image that fits your lifestyle, values and career goals.
Professional Image Update
For those who feel they need a little more help, I can either create a list of items for you to purchase on your own or we can go at it together. You need to learn what to buy, who to buy from, and how to best dress yourself.
